I don't know because I question whether there was a political agenda by the shooter. Absent that, it's just a mass shooting or more evidence that the Government needs to save us from ourselves.Is every shooting domestic terrorism now? Is it home grown terrorism? Are we going to start likening our crime to the atrocities of isil?
Or is it because it was a gay club?
How were the drinks?Man, I'm glad I left when I did...I mean...this is sad....:-":blkeye:
I think the second bullet point is what we're waiting to see. Motive will be the straw that breaks the camel's back.FBI definition of Domestic Terrorism ...but, don't see it fitting yet.
"Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:
Hate crime, sure.....Active shooter, absolutely....DT? hmmmmmm
- Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
- Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
- Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S."
Authorities immediately branded the incident “domestic terrorism,” but the level of preparedness, the fact that the target was a gay nightclub, and the presence of explosive devices potentially indicate foreign terrorist involvement.
Not really. In the hierarchy of victims, Islam trumps trans, trumps cis gay/lesbian, trumps bi, trumps straight. Anyone that tries to make this Stonewall 2.0 is going to be branded as Hitler meets Trixie Mattel. If they can't completely blame islamophobia, it will merely become an anti-2A issue.Is anyone really surprised? 50% of Muslims in the UK believe that homosexuality should be illegal.
They hate women. They hate gays. And yet the lefties have a love affair with the religion of pieces. Problem is they also love anything to do with LGBT, so they must be going through some serious cognitive dissonance right now. Though I'm sure a bit of the usual denial will help them through this.
